I’ve had ten days on the little (virtually unknown) island of Lana’i in Hawaii.  So unknown that Lonely Planet doesn’t even have a section on it’s website about it!  I’ve been breaking in my new Gallaxy SIII smartphone at the same time as part of this trip.  And what better place than this unique island to test out the Panoramic feature of my new SIII?  I used to have to get a special app to do panoramic photos – but  the SIII has the functionality built right in.

Lana’i is so unique and charming and I’ll be writing much more extensively about Lana’i in the coming weeks – but this should give you a good teaser of what’s to come!  The island is full of gorgeous and surprising vistas that are unlike any Hawaii you’ve ever seen before.  Here’s a few views of the entire island – from the forested ares of Cook Island Pines to the secluded beaches, to the other-worldly landscapes, to the brushy dry plaines – Panoramic Lana’i is stunning.
